    In the navy, not only did we do our work, but we knew what we were talking about too. Wiki not a good source, let's see what the military says(I picked the marines since they are the best ground troops):

    the PFT provides an instrument that measures the collective level of physical fitness Marine Corps wide. It is a measurement of general fitness vice combat readiness and unit/MOS capability.

    Perhaps it escaped you that I was pointing out how the Army Physical Fitness Test is defined?

    Short of BUDS, how many times do sailors go on 25 mile humps with 75+ pounds of gear on their backs?

    Think this troop is wishing he had a little more upper body strength and stamina? I'm guessing, yeah, but your mileage may vary.



    BTW, he's a motorman. See the baseplate on his ruck?

    Whatever happened to the word ‘trooper’?

    Carrying **** isn't the gender issue you think it is. Running with wider hips, now that's an impediment.

    Trooper is a term that defines a mounted soldier, typically a cavalryman. It's also use when addressing paratroopers. Historically, "trooper", doesn't apply to anyone outside the cavalry.

    Carrying **** isn't the gender issue you think it is. Running with wider hips, now that's an impediment.
    Which why some women may not be fit to serve in combat arms. Men, who are totin' an extra 40 pounds of belly aren't fit for combat arms, either.

    This seems to be a pattern with people today. You managed to not address what I pointed out in the least, and came back with entirely unrelated points that do not disprove anything I have stated.

    Sorry, but what exactly are you pointing out regarding the PFT?

    Since reading the thread is too difficult, I will actually help you out:

    Which was a shame, I thought, because his MOS was typewriter repair, or some pog other pog ass **** like that.
    Hey I was regetted for the Air Force due to high arches when the old man who was a Green Beret and had jumped out planes hundreds of times has higher arches than me. It never stopped him.

    It didn't stop me either. I tried again and this time they forgot to check the arches. I remember the doc saying, "Is there anything you think I missed." I said, "nope!" She forgot to stick her finger in my butt too. I wasn't going to remind her of that either.

    One of the stupidest things I ever saw was when I was in the ANG. We had a body builder booted out because he was considered overweight for his height. Imagine that. Well hell yeah muscle weighs more than fat you dimrods!
